Today as a result of working Rik VK3KAN on 3 occasions, I surpassed the 2,000 point mark as a SOTA Chaser.
Unfortunately I missed Rik on his last activation. I was out the back cleaning out the shed, when the SOTA Goat bleated at me. So I was hurriedly on my way inside when the phone rang. By the time I got off the phone, and to the radio 15 minutes later I learnt that Rik had left the summit due to poor weather. But at least I worked Rik from 3 of his 4 SOTA activations today. Well done Rik on your efforts.
It seemed like only yesterday that I had reached Shack Sloth level (29th June, 2013). The last 1,000 points have certainly come very quickly in the past 4 months, with all the SOTA activations every weekend, and even during the week nowadays.
I made up the certificate below for Rik, and will mail this off to him in the next day or two. Just to say thanks for being a part of one of my SOTA milestones.
